Luggage allowances

One of the best things about travelling with Eurostar is that there’s no weight limit for your luggage,as long as you’re able to carry your own bags and put them safely in the luggage rack on board.

There’s also no restriction on liquids, so you can pack a bottle of bubbly for the train, or bring backsome Parisian perfume or a bottle or two from a château-hopping trip.
Luggage allowance on Eurostar

What luggage can you take on the Eurostar

Adults

If you’re travelling with an adult ticket, you can take:

  • 2 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase

Pushchairs and prams travel for free in addition to your individual allowance. You’ll just need to fold your pram and store it in the luggage rack above your seat.

Business Premier

If you’re travelling with a Business Premier ticket, you can take:

  • 3 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase

Children

Little ones travelling with a child’s ticket can take:

  • 1 piece of luggage (up to 85cm long)
  • 1 piece of hand luggage

Children under four years old travel free with Eurostar, so they don’t need a ticket. Since they won’t have a seat or luggage allowance though, they’ll need to sit on a grown-up’s lap and fit all their belongings in with the adult’s too.

Extra luggage

If you’d like to take more than the standard luggage allowance with you, or items over 85cm long, you’ll need to use EuroDespatch, our registered luggage service. We can send items to or from London, Paris, Lille and Brussels. The maximum size for registered luggage is 2m long.

Can I send it on ahead of me?

You can send your luggage up to a week before you travel, then collect it when you arrive. We’ll keep it at the luggage office at your destination for 14 days.

Unfortunately, we can’t accept any registered items, or those over 85cm long, to or from Ashford, Ebbsfleet, Calais, Disneyland® Paris, Lyon, Avignon, Marseille or any of our ski destinations.
